    For dinner tonight, I am having homemade bread with strawberry jam and a cup of tea ... I'm not very hungry lately.

    Have absolutely no clue what to feed the kiddies. Maybe I'll let them fend for themselves.

    aabbcc that cracks me up.. before I had kids I knew a woman whose 5 kids ranged from like 10 to 20 years old. I asked her how in the world she fed them all and she yawned and said "they know where the pots and pans are." I was so scandalized about that until my own kids got to that age and I totally understood

    Ribs with coleslaw and corn! I spent last evening making a super-yummy bbq sauce, so everything is marinating as we speak.

    Mmmmm, I love bbq sauce!

    Corn on the cob
    Young romaine lettuce salad
    Veggies & dip
    French baguette
    Brie

    Moomies - butter chicken sounds good. I've never heard of that before. What's involved?

    MissKris' avocado stuffed chicken sounds delicious too.

    Vegetarian chili beans with diced tomatoes served over brown rice. Topped with cheddar cheese. Yummy. It also makes the best leftover lunch. Tastes better the next day.

    Fresh deep fried walleye that my husband caught in Lake Huron, and HE cooked. And i through together a rice and veggie side dish, and a fresh greens salad from my patio salad garden. It tasted wonderful, and we cooked together which is nice.

    Whole wheat bowtie pasta with a fresh tomato, onion, yellow pepper, parsley, basil and garlic sauce, fava beans, and arugula all tossed together. Plus, I added some spinach/feta/chicken sausage to mine. Followed by fresh raspberries.

    OK but do you cook the bow tie pasta first? And is this a hot or cold dish? And what is garlic sauce? Can you buy some? And is that a can of fava beans? cooked first? Drained? I need more information.

    I boil the water for the pasta, and while I'm doing that I heat some olive oil in a heavy frying pan. Add about a quarter of finely chopped onion and a clove of minced garlic and saute. Add about a half of a chopped red/yellow/green paper -- whatever you have on hand -- and saute that for a couple of minutes. Then add a 16 oz can of diced tomatoes -- or chopped fresh ripe ones. Throw in some parsley, basil and salt and pepper to taste, and let the sauce simmer.

    Dump the pasta in the boiling water and cook for about 15 minutes or to taste -- whole wheat takes longer. If you used canned fava beans, drain and rinse them and add them to the skillet just long enough to heat them through. Drain the pasta, put in a big bowl and toss with the sauce. I added the sausage last (I cooked it earlier). Serve with fresh Parmesan cheese.

    I just made this recipe up, but it's basic sauce and pasta. See -- it's dead easy!
